Abstract: 

Cervical thymic cyst is a rare entity of either congenital or inflammatory origin described infrequently in literature. The asymptomatic nature of the entity and the rarity of the lesion frequently lead to a diagnostic dilemma many times. We present a case of cervical thymic cyst that presented to us as an asymptomatic neck mass that was managed surgically. Cervical thymic cyst should be kept as a differential diagnosis of an asymptomatic neck swelling especially in children.
